-What do they have installed on their shield?
Sometimes customers side load apps not on our product and those apps kill the experience of apps legally allowed to be on SHIELD. We would tell customer to delete those unlicensed apps and then test experience of Amazon Video on SHIELD. This process would identify the bad app.
-Have they rooted their device?
Rooting is something customers do that pretty much wipes out software on shield. it actually would technically void the warranty. We could helpful customer if we knew if they did this though we would need to know they rooted their SHIELD first.
-Do they have USB Port on SHIELD ? what device are they using?
Some USB hubs go bad after extended use and we can show customer how to test them.
-If above does not work, consumer should contact Nvidia Customer Case.

This is hands-down the best tv streaming device out there. You just need to know (or google in about 5 minutes) how to use it. Most apps you need are in the included Google Play store, but you can side-load any android apps that aren’t (google it). You can put third party apps on the home screen by adding shortcuts to them (google that too). It has Netflix and Amazon streaming apps pre-installed (you need to have an account for those respective services to use them). It can play any audio or video file type with the right app. You can plug-and-play an external hard drive, and transfer files to and from other computers and drives on your network. You can stream from any device on your network. The interface is better than Fire TV, and the new Fire TV doesn’t have USB input for extra storage. You can use any programmable or learning (aka “universal”) IR remote. You can use any Bluetooth controller. You can stream live TV with the right apps if you’re a subscriber to that live TV service. It’s fast. It’s small. It looks pretty cool. Not only does it work, but there is absolutely nothing I can think of that anyone would want to do with it as a video streaming device, that this device can’t do. It is far and away the absolute best device for that purpose.
If it’s defective or faulty or DOA, return it and get another one.
Now, having said all of that, a caveat regarding gaming:
The pocessing power is there. You can stream games from PC with the right setup, and it will work for that. In the long-run though, it’s an android device. If your main intention for getting the Shield is gaming, I would recommend going with a PC, or a console instead. Retro games are flawless on the Shield, but for hardcore gamers of current games, I don’t think it’s the best choice.
As a TV, Movie, Video, and retro-games media center though, the Shield TV and an external hard drive are the best possible option out there.
As for the price. It’s a little more expensive than some other options. It was massively on sale during the Thanksgiving and “cyber” sales period. If you want the best video media center, it’s worth it.
Why you SHOULDN’T get it:
Maybe you don’t need all of that. If you just want to stream Amazon and Netflix, a Fire TV is much cheaper and performs those functions just fine. The Shield is for people who want a lot more options in their media and more control over what, where, and how to play it. You just have to know or learn how to use it. If you don’t need those extra perks, or the time and energy required to learn how to get it to do what you want isn’t worth it to you, look elsewhere.
As far as giving it one star because it was defective or DOA: return it for a replacement.
As far as giving it one star because you don’t like the remote: use a different remote.
As far as giving it a bad review because it’s too expensive: you knew how much it cost and paid for it. While I can appreciate that these issues might be frustrating, none of them is a fault of the product.
If it doesn’t do what you thought it would, you didn’t do the research first to see what the device is capable of. I did a ton of research before purchasing the Shield TV. For me, it’s not only the best option, but far surpasses the capabilities of any other choice on the market right now.
I just don’t understand all of the negative reviews.
I've tried a lot of the other streamers and i feel SHIELD is my favorite device.
I have an Android phone, so i love that it has Google Assistant integration. It's great to have integration with my google photos - you can press search and ask SHIELD to "Show me my pictures from xyz". Also nice that you can see what's on your google calendar and cast directly from your android phone to your TV.
4K HDR catalog is great because SHIELD has Netflix, Amazon Video and Vudu in HDR.
Youtube experience is better than other streamers - you have full search integration, but you can even say show me the latest Tonight Show or ask to play any Music Video and it just direct plays into the Youtube Video. It also seems youtube on SHIELD supports 360 so you can use your remote to see shows in 360 on SHIELD. i know neither of this works on my Roku or Fire TV.
I also use Plex and it seems SHIELD is the only streamer that supports Plex as a client and server device.
Finally, it is nice that SHIELD has also integrated Samsung Smartthings Hub. I am just started to set up a smart home in my home and it is nice that i can turn on/off my lights via my SHIELD, and set routines through Samsung Integration.
I know it is a bit more expensive than other streamers, but i use my streamer more than 10 hours a week so i think it is worth the extra money.
The remote is severely lacking in buttons, if i didn't have a Harmony remote that would be more of an issue -- but the harmony remote, when paired doesn't have the full keyboard, so to get the most out of your universal remote get a FLIC IR receiver to add in the missing functions.
